Episode 29: The Basel 3.1 challenge for EU and UK banks

Regulated Radio podcasts

Is the banking sector ready for the implementation of Basel 3.1? Can it manage the complexity of an increasingly fragmented regulatory environment as key regulators look set to diverge from the international Basel standards? In this episode, Deloitte’s global Basel 3 leader, Tom Spellman, and Rod Hardcastle join Scott Martin to discuss the path ahead for implementing Basel 3.1, including the EU’s recent CRD6/CRR3 legislative proposal. Tune in now to hear what is still uncertain and what banks should start doing right away.

Key questions:

  • How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected the progress regulators have made towards implementing Basel 3.1?
  • What did the CRD6/CRR3 proposal in October show us about the EU’s intentions to implement the Basel framework?
  • Are other major jurisdictions, such as the UK and US, likely to follow the EU in delaying the implementation of Basel 3.1?
  • How much of a challenge is regulatory divergence in prudential standards for cross-border banks?
  • What ‘no regret’ actions should banks start taking this year before the rulemaking process is completed?
